    ok, i have a <textarea> section in my code, also put ...wrap="soft"> but it doesnt wrap. It just create a horizontal scroll bar instead. It wraps automatically in IE.

    It depends on what you define by wrap. Do you want to enter one loooooooooooooooooooong text or seperate words? In the first case, wrap isn't supported by Mozilla (Firebird), in the second case, seperate words, wrap is supported. The breaking of a loooooooong textstring is only supported by Internet Explorer.

    Well, actually I personally like it better. Because when are you gonna enter loooooooong strings? Second, when IE breaks a loooooooooooooong string in like
    looooooooooo
    ooooooooong
    it looks like there are two words, while there is actually one.
